After the lockdown swung into action around the globe, employees were asked to work from home. This gave a US-based video conference platform an exponential uptick in terms of influx of users on the platform. The app allowed companies to conduct meetings on a group video call and thus, humongous popularity. However, it all went down when Standard Chartered Bank and a few other companies warned employees not to use it due to the zoombombing threat. 

This opened up the floodgates for other app developers to launch their video conferencing app and ‘Say Namaste’ is a great example of the latest Indian app that was released a few days ago. In fact, merely 48 hours after the web application was released, it recorded a whopping 25,000 meetings and over 100,000 users in India. Apparently, the web application is currently in beta stage and it would be sometime from now when the developers will release a stable version of it after fixing all the bugs.

As opposed to the fake news tagging this Indian app as a government-owned web application aiding in video conferencing, Say Namaste is a brainchild of a Mumbai-based web application and software development company that goes by the name Inscripts. The web application is currently on a heavy influx in terms of users online which is the reason many would come across connectivity issues as it is clearly mentioned on the website.

Also, since it is a beta app, it is prone to lagging and errors here and there which can be fixed upon further releases. Note that this is a web application and the app for Android via Google Play Store and Apple via App Store is not available at the moment. Although users can use it on desktop and smartphones via web browsers without any hassle.
